Just yesterday a co-worker was late to work because his smartphone for some reason had the wrong time set. That is why I still rock an old Sony alarm clock by my bed as a fail safe to make sure I’m never late to work. The problem is that the alarm clock is old and the second alarm slider button stopped working. I was looking for a more modern alarm clock that I could put in my bedroom. The Anker Wakey was something I have been looking for awhile now. The Anker Wakey is an alarm clock, fm radio, Bluetooth Speaker, Qi Wireless charger, and white noise machine all in one.
The Wakey looks very modern compared to the old Sony alarm clocks. The Wakey currently comes in all white with a future black version available soon after. The white plastic has an almost rubberized feel to it and did not flex in testing. The front of the Wakey has a grey fabric which has an LED display underneath. The LED display will automatically dim when it is dark.
The Anker Soundcore Wakey is best used with the Anker Soundcore app in the Google Play store. This app allows you to update the clock, set up alarms, set preset Fm radio stations, and use various sleeping white noise sounds. Once you download the app and setup a connection with Bluetooth you the Wakey will synchronise with the phones time so it’s accurate. And the Wakey also has a backup coin battery so the time will not be reset if it is plugged in again within 90 minutes.
I use the Wakey as a Bluetooth Speaker in my bedroom to watch Youtube videos and listen to music. The speaker is quite powerful with two 5 watt speakers up front that total 10 watts off power. This speaker gets loud and can rival standalone Bluetooth Speakers. Also when I am watching Youtube videos there is no lag with audio and video. The FM radio is great to tune into your favorite stations. It includes a wire antenna that plugs into the headphone jack. The Anker Soundcore Wakey has two USB Charging ports on back in case you need to charge other phones, smartwatches, etc. I have tested the Qi charging with my Huawei Mate 20 Pro inside it’s Spigen Rugged armor case and it works great.
The Anker Soundcore Wakey is the best alarm clock on the market with smart features. It is something I have been looking for in an alarm clock for awhile. The price is $99.99 and is well worth it when you consider all it’s features. Now I can charge my phone, setup my alarm for work tomorrow, listen to soothing white noise, play some music, and more. I have now donated my Sony alarm clock to Goodwill and will use the Anker Soundcore Wakey as my preferred Alarm clock of choice.
